Most Trump supporters adore his desire to drain the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
But Trump shocked his most hardened supporters with this recent comment.
And while the swamp creatures were rejoicing, Trump supporters were left in stunned silence.
Trump is paying the price for challenging the system
Nearly all the politicians who go to Washington, D.C. are the same.
They talk a big game about standing up to the system and looking out for their constituency.
But when they actually enter the Capital of the United States, they change forever becoming one with the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
And one of the only outliers in this story we see play out over and over is Donald Trump.
Back in 2015, Donald Trump promised the American people that he was going to challenge the system that is hampering so many Americans.
And many believed that if he became President, he would just be the next big named politician who became part of the Swamp.
Well, nothing is further from the truth.
Donald Trump disrupted the system by just winning in 2016.
Now, many people wish that he would have taken concrete steps to challenge the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
And some Americans can point to acts by Trump that would be seen as Swampy (like endorsing Establishment Republican leadership over and over again).
But the mere fact that he was in Washington, D.C. made him enemy number one for the federal system and we are seeing that hatred against Trump play out today before our very eyes.
Trump is now facing over 90 criminal charges for being guilty of trying to challenge the system while in the Oval Office.
And as Trump runs again during this primary cycle, many of Trump’s biggest fans are hopeful that he can end the Swamp that has a vendetta against him.
Well, it looks like Trump may be willing to give the Swamp the biggest gift they can ever dream of.
A gaffe by Trump?
Politicians have been debating how much funding should be given to the FBI for a possible new headquarters, and some conservatives are urging if we are going to fund the FBI, then move their headquarters out of the swamp of Washington, D.C.
Well, Donald Trump commented on the matter on Truth Social and claimed, “The FBI Headquarters should not be moved to a far away location, but should stay right where it is, in a new and spectacular building, in the best location in our now crime ridden and filthy dirty, graffiti scarred, Capitol. They should be involved in bringing back D.C.”

This is a mind-boggling response, especially since the FBI has declared war on the former President.
If you want to drain the Swamp, this isn’t the response you want to see.
With the greed, power, and money swirling around Washington, D.C., the town has become the epicenter of what is wrong with the United States.
If you are going to fund the bureaucracy, at least move it out of the Swamp of Washington, D.C.
